Nashville, TN - (September 25, 2013) - Internationally-recognized singer/songwriter Jason Castro is gearing up for the release of the third single, "Stay This Way," from his debut Word Entertainment album, Only A Mountain. This week the track ships to radio and will go for adds on October 18th. Castro, after having spent the summer co-headlining a tour with Ryan Cabrera, promoting his appearance in the UP! original movie, "The Perfect Summer," and visiting Colombia, South America, on an "I am Second" expedition, is hitting the road again this week with Matthew West and Sidewalk Prophets for West's "Into the Light Tour." Then, throughout the holiday season, he'll join NewSong for "The Very Merry Christmas Tour" which runs through December 15.

"'Stay This Way' is the most relevant for me lyrically. You know, in the last couple years I think I realized for the first time that I'd grown up accustomed to some things being the way they were, thinking that I can't outrun my last mistake, and I'm just stuck here. I always believed in God, I knew He was good - I thought I was just messed up," said Castro who co-wrote the song with its producers Ben Glover and David Garcia. "I didn't understand what people meant by freedom in Christ. I never felt free - I always felt like a slave to my sin. It wasn't until these last few years that I got into my first real Biblical community. And as I started to share my life with others, and we studied God's word together, I really discovered freedom for the first time. And so that's been a big part of my journey these last few years and one of the highlights."

On Thursday, Matthew West's "Into the Light Tour" featuring Castro and Sidewalk Prophets commences in Carlsbad, NM. The tour runs through November 17th and is scheduled to visit 30 cities throughout the U.S. Immediately following this tour he'll join "The Very Merry Christmas Tour" alongside NewSong, Audio Adrenaline and Love & The Outcome. The tour kicks off in Tyler, TX, on November 30th and hits 15 cities.
